No, this is a lack of understanding on your part. Both PAL and NTSC
are interlaced formats which use pulldown to display film content.
NTSC just happens to be 3:2, whereas PAL is 2:2 (with horrible
speed-up) or 2:2:2:2:2:2:2:2:2:2:2:3. :) Also there's no guarantee
that 2:2 PAL is in phase with the field pairing of the capture device.
Basically you always need some sort of inverse pulldown for film
content, regardless of whether you have NTSC or PAL. It's just that
sometimes with PAL you get lucky and the capture device/broadcast/dvd
field pairing happens to give you the desired frame matching.
